Ronnie Milsap launches #1 Tour in June

Thursday, May 15, 2008 – Ronnie Milsap will launch his #1 Hits Tour in June with dates into December. Great American Country's Master Series will sponsor the tour.

"It's great news for the fans and myself," said Milsap. "With GAC partnering with me on this 2008 tour, the fans will not only have the opportunity to see me live but also have access via GAC and their website." Beginning in June and running through the end of the year, GAC will publicize the tour via on-air mentions and promotions and its website for streaming interviews and features from the tour. GAC's "Master Series" with Bill Cody will mention the tour on-air and shoot in studio or on location from the tour.

"GAC has sponsored many tours but this opportunity allowed us to tie our Master Series show directly to an artist with so many number one hits," says Scott Durand, vice president of marketing for GAC." GAC's Master Series focuses on the great artists and their songs, and Ronnie's tour was a perfect fit."

CD review - A Better Word for Love There was a time when Ronnie Milsap's soulful approach to making country music was controversial. Some thought he was too pop. However, compared to contemporary country music, Milsap now sounds more traditional than ever. No matter where Milsap has fit along the country spectrum, though, he has always been a great singer. Now, with "A Better Word for Love," Milsap's voice sounds like it hasn't diminished even one little bit. Listen to the way Milsap sometimes growls ...
CD review - Ronnie Milsap: The Duets Is Ronnie Milsap proud of his age? For a clue, look no further than the name of his "76 for 76" Tour. There are some other numbers the North Carolina native is probably fond of, such as 40 number 1 records or 6 Grammys. Milsap's qualifications for the Country Music Hall of Fame were such a no-brainer they left electors with no brains. The injustice was rectified when Milsap was finally inducted in 2014. The primary hitmaking days are now a distant memory, but the blind piano man ...
CD review - Summer Number Seventeen Quick, what guy compiled 40 number one country singles, recorded with everybody from Ray Charles to Elvis, but has yet to be enshrined in the Country Music Hall of Fame? Yes, it's Ronnie Milsap, now in his 70s, just like Merle Haggard (who was inducted 20 years ago). Clearly, the ornery outlaws get more attention than the nice guy romantics. And it doesn't help that Milsap has always been interested in many different flavors of music, from '70s Philadelphia Soul to '50s doo-wop. ...
